Ubaldo Jimenez Dials up the Past

I understand the phrase “playing with house money.” I’ve used it myself a fair amount of times. So as I’m about to suggest the Baltimore Orioles are playing with house money regarding the current Ubaldo Jimenez, I stop. Quite literally they are playing with their own. They have been since February 2014 when they signed him to a four-year contract totaling $50 million. ...

Baltimore Orioles: Matusz suspension presents dilemma for MLB

This past weekend was not a pleasant one for the Baltimore Orioles as they lost two of three to the lowly Marlins. Watching the Orioles trying to score runs was painful, as they put up a goose egg in a 13-inning game Saturday. However, the Orioles pitching staff was in the spotlight during that particular game when relief pitcher Brian Matusz was ejected in the extra inning affair...

The Baltimore Orioles Need Clarity in the Outfield

Entering the 2015 season, the most worrisome position — make that two positions — for Baltimore Orioles fans were the corner outfield spots. That’s to be expected when the club loses a 40-home run bat in Nelson Cruz and a franchise cornerstone in Nick Markakis. Unlike most Orioles fans, however, I remained pretty positive when looking at the Orioles’ outfield options to replace...

Vol 7: AL East Weekly Wrap-Up

Mike Wright had a great week for the Baltimore Orioles I think that through the first few series of all these AL East teams being outside of the division, we can clearly see that the AL East might end up being the worst division at seasons end. All teams in this division outside of the Tampa Bay Rays don’t pitch very well, all teams can hit outside of Tampa, and 3/5 times have...

Orioles Pitcher Brian Matusz Ejected For Foreign Substance On Arm (Video)

Baltimore Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz ran into a little trouble during extra innings of Saturday’s game against the Miami Marlins. It wasn’t because of poor performance, but rather for the possible performance enhancer on his right forearm. Marlins manager Dan Jennings, who earned his first career win Saturday night, didn’t waste any time violating one of the unwritten...

Mike Wright turns in another impressive start for Orioles

What can you really say about a rookie pitcher who turns in his second consecutive scoreless start, as Baltimore Orioles’ right-hander Mike Wright did yesterday against the Miami Marlins. Wright, who tossed 7.1 scoreless innings last Sunday to beat the Los Angeles Angels and record his first Major League victory, followed that performance up with 7.0 innings of shutout, three-hit...

Brian Matusz ejected for having foreign substance on arm

For the second time in three days, an MLB pitcher was ejected for having a foreign substance on his arm. On Saturday, the lucky (or unlucky, I guess) recipient of an ejection was Baltimore Orioles reliever Brian Matusz, following in the footsteps of Brewers reliever Will Smith, ejected on Thursday from the Brewers-Braves game. Matusz retired two batters in the 12th inning of...

Tyler Wilson and T.J. McFarland could shore up Orioles’ Bullpen

A strength of the Baltimore Orioles the past three winning seasons has been the team’s bullpen. The Orioles have defied the Pythagorean odds and the regression models, especially in one-run and extra-inning games, thanks to an uncanny ability to hold late leads and keep runs off the scoreboard once the starter leaves the game. In the team’s playoff seasons of 2012 and 2014, the...

The Potential New J.D. Martinez

As far as health is concerned, the Orioles have had something of a middle-infield catastrophe, with injuries to J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, and Jonathan Schoop. Injuries sometimes force teams to do creative things, and what we saw Buck Showalter do was push Steve Pearce to second base on the fly. Pearce had never played the […]

Adam Jones Is Up to Something

Monday afternoon, I participated in an Orioles-centric podcast, where one of the things I was supposed to talk about was Manny Machado. I wrote about Machado a couple of weeks ago, and more specifically, I wrote about him suddenly exercising a lot more patience at the plate. From what we understand about plate-discipline statistics, they […]

Orioles workers who lost wages during protest will be paid

In late April, Baltimore Orioles employees lost wages for an entire week. Two games were justifiably canceled and one was played in front of an empty Camden Yards stadium, while three others were moved to Tampa Bay where the Orioles acted as the home team. The cancelations were a direct result of civil unrest in Baltimore, from those protesting the death of Freddy Gray at the...
